SubjectRe: Linux NFS Problem

Thanks Russ for your reply.

Do you know if I can setup a parameter on the NFSD that can increase the
delay time ?

What I mean is that if it's possibility to ask the system to wait a more
longer before saying that there is an NFS Problem.

I'm asking you this because the time that passes from NFS NOT RESPONDING and
NFS OK is very short.

Thanks in advance

It's quite possible that you've just overloaded your NFS server.
The messages you are seeing are one symptom of an overloaded server
that can't respond to client requests fast enough.
